“Be Agents of Positive Change”
… Women Cautioned
|Mrs. Elmira Sellu, Regional Missionary Initiative/UMW|
Mrs. Elmira Sellu, Sis. Alfreda E. Anderson, and Ms. Beatrice Fofanah speaking briefly at the start of the three-day Regional Missionary Initiative Workshop at the S. T. Nagbe United Methodist Church in Monrovia, challenged participants at the workshop to make positive differences in their neighborhoods, communities, country, and the world at large.

Mrs. Sellu urged participants to always be in readiness to show positive attitudes, love, and a clear heart to others. She told participants to be good leaders who care about people’s feelings—what they feel, how they feel, and why they feel that way, in a given situation.
Madam Sellu said agents of positive change are leaders who live lives with legacies that benefit others.
She maintained that any leader who fails to reproduce himself or herself is a failure, leaving behind a short positive memory but with a long-lasting negative effect on those left behind.
The workshop is now in its second day of dealing with various topics such as “women as leaders in church and society”, “women and gender”, “women and HIV/AIDS”, and “how to work with young women” among others. The workshop is filled with interactions and dramas depicting various behaviors of good leaders and servants.
